Small Scale Renovations

Well, I am happy to report that I am finally getting around to finishing up my 1:12 scale dollhouse.  I did not build this one, but purchased it second hand and it needs a bit of work doing to it.  I’ve cleaned it up and now it’s ready for floor coverings and wallpaper.  I will have to do some repair work on the exterior and roof as well. 

I’ve been meaning to get this house spruced up for a long time so I am pleased that it has finally crept up to the top of my ‘to-do’ list and I’m ready to get it finished so that I can furnish it with all the lovely little treasures I have collected, been given or made over the years.

My little house will be set in the 1950’s so I will be looking for some nostalgic/retro styles of wallpaper and it will be fun to spend some time looking through my stash of miniatures to choose just the right items to use in the rooms.  I’m looking forward to completing this project and will post pictures as the work progresses.

A cloudy, grey and windy day with a few snow flurries here; the temperature is only -3 but it is feeling like -10.   

Have a good day, everyone!!  Cheers, Nanny Anny

Snowstorm yesterday ... sunshine today!

Well, the sky is blue and the sun is shining again after yesterday’s snowstorm.  The snow banks along the streets are still very high; it’s going to take some time for it all to melt, even when it finally warms up to that stage.  It has been a very cold winter here with far too many days when the temperature has registered in the -20’s or even colder with the wind chill factor.  I’m definitely ready for some warm, sunny days!  Come on Spring!!


With that in mind, I have been busy sorting through my winter clothes and have set aside everything that I did not wear this year.  I figure the chances are good that if it didn’t get worn this year, then it won’t be worn next winter either so it’s all getting bundled off to the local thrift shop.  No sense storing it when I’m pretty sure it’s all surplus to requirements.

I had a comment from a bloggy friend who noticed there were no current posts and wondered if all was well.  Yes Mum, I'm pleased to say that everything is fine but thank you so much for your comment and for noticing my absence.  I shall try very hard to keep up a bit better and get into the 'blogging mood' more often. 
Have a good day everyone!  from Nanny Anny
